Kukors breaks women's 200m medley world record (AFP) â€" 40 minutes agoROME, July — American Ariana Kukors broke the women's 200m individual medley world record here on Sunday with a time of 2min 07.03sec in the semi-finals at the World Championships.The 20-year-old shattered the previous world record of 2:08.45, set by Australian Stephanie Rice on August 13, 2008 at the Beijing Olympics.Rice was second in the second semi-final behind Kukors in 2:08.68.

Britain's Miley Hannah, third in the second semi, was third-fastest overall in 2:09.46, with Denmark's Julie Hjorth-Hansen and Zimbabwe's Kirsty Coventry also advancing to Monday's final.At the US trials in Indianapolis earlier this month, Kukors finished third in the 200m medley, missing out on the top-two finish needed to book a World Championships berth.But the spot in the race went to her after runner-up Elizabeth Pelton withdrew to focus on other events.Copyright © 2009 AFP.
